Established last year, Columbia Climate School represents a historic commitment by Columbia to tackle the climate crisis. The first new school to be established at Columbia in 25 years, it will serve as a hub for research, learning and action. The Climate School builds on Columbia’s strengths to solve problems, educate future climate leaders, and generate the knowledge needed to design and inspire solutions as the window to avert the potentially catastrophic effects of climate change closes. The school’s first class of incoming students arrives on campus in September 2021.
The Columbia Climate School is proud to be the University Partner for Climate Week NYC 2021. All institutions have a role to play in addressing the climate crisis and we look forward to convening and engaging diverse stakeholders to advance climate action and solutions.
